Ontario College of Art 

The Ontario College of Art 
(formerly the Central Ontario School 
of Art and Industrial Design, which was 
founded in 1876) was incorporated by 
Act of the Provincial Parliament in 1912. 
It occupied quarters in various buildings 
until 1921 when the Ontario Govern- 
ment built the present building on land 
in Grange Park donated by the Art 
Gallery of Toronto. 

The Government of the College is 
entrusted to a Council of twenty-five 
members, thirteen of whom are appointed 
by the Lieutenant-Governor-in-Council, 
and twelve by various Provincial organ- 
izations interested in art. 

The function of the College is the 
education of the artist. The student is 
taught to appreciate the best that has 

been done in the various Fine Art and 
Artistic Crafts, and to develop the mental 
attitude and technical skill which makes 
both the creation and the expression of 
beauty a source of enjoyment. 

Although the student body consists 
of varied groups, those studying art for 
its cultural value, those proposing to 
teach, and those anticipating professional 
work, the College believes that the train- 
ing of the professional is best suited to 
all, maintaining that the powers of analysis 
and appreciation are developed to a 
greater extent through creative work than 
in any other way. 

The various courses are designed to 
equip the student to take his place in 
the economic world.

General Information 

The Value of the Ontario College of 
Art training is becoming more widely 
appreciated. Students from all parts of 
the Dominion, the United States and 
various countries, were enrolled last year. 
It is necessary, therefore, to apply for 
admittance as early as possible. Early 
registration is also advisable, as it is 
essential to the full success of the course 
that studies should commence with the 
opening of the classes. 

Day Classes. Day classes for the general 
session are open to men and women 
students over sixteen years of age. In- 
tending students are required to give 
particulars of their age, school education, 
previous training in art study, and to 
present satisfactory evidence of their 
interest and ability. When completing 
registration at the College, students must 
also show a few general examples of 
work done by them. 

Evening Classes. Students entering 
Evening Classes who have had art train- 
ing elsewhere must submit work for 
examination when applying for admis- 
sion. Students who have had no previous 
training must register for First Year work, 
and all evening students are required to 
pay the full fees for the year in advance. 

Professional Artists' Class. Archibald 
Barnes, R.C.A., O.S.A.. conducts a 
portrait class on Saturday afternoons for 
professional artists. For this class the 
fee is $20.00 per year. 

Special Pottery Classes. Instruction 
is given to non-students in special pottery 
classes two afternoons or two evenings 
per week. The fee for the afternoon 
class is $20.00 and for the evening class 
$15.00 per year. 

Diploma and Post-Graduate Courses. 
Post-Graduate Courses are each free 
studentship courses. The course must 
be taken in the year immediately follow- 
ing the student's Fourth Year or gradua- 
tion, and the student must have a definite 
course of work agreed upon by the 
principal. This period of study is con- 
sidered by the College to be mainly one 
of practical effort on the part of the 
student to enter professional life, and the 
College offers facilities to the student to 
improve along the lines chosen. The 
necessity to further develop technical 
ability and add to the knowledge gained, 
with a view to fuller equipment for the 
life of the artist or teacher, is urged upon 
the graduate and work is arranged for 
that purpose. 

A Class for Juniors. Free tuition is 
given to selected students from Second- 
ary Schools on Saturday mornings 
throughout the college year. 

Lectures are given on the History of 
Art, Anatomy, Architecture, Design, and 
the Technique of Painting.

Commercial and Graphic Art 

Head of Dept.: FRANK CARMICHAEL, R.C.A., O.S.A. 

Second Year. Each project is pre- 
pared with the idea of applying, 
enlarging and relating design principles 
to commercial advertising and graphic art. 

Third Year. The projects are prepared 
in such a way that the student is gradually 
made familiar with the more difficult 
commercial art problems, not only in 
their advertising values but also for their 
successful reproduction by the various 
mechanical processes. 

A definite effort is made to encourage 
the student to make use of his work in 
other departments, viz. , illustration, draw- 
ing and painting from life, costume, and 
still life. 

Fourth Year. Projects are planned so 
that the student is given every oppor- 
tunity to explore all the possibilities of 
the particular branch on which he may 
wish to concentrate. 

From Second Year to Fourth Year, 
every effort is made to equip the student 
with a practical and sound knowledge, 
not only of the art and design require- 
ments of commercial and graphic art, 
but also of the mechanical and adver- 
tising requirements.

Interior Decoration 

Head of Dept.: GUSTAV HAHN, R.C.A.. O.S.A 

The Training in this course gives the 
student the power to collaborate 
with the architect, to make drawings, 
including sections and full-sized details 
necessary in the execution of an interior. 
It also gives them a classical basis on 
which to create in the modern manner. 

Second Year. The student is trained in 
the fundamentals of architecture and of 
furniture design, as well as in form and 
colour as they relate to the composition 
and decoration of the room. The course 
presents a sequence of problems includ- 
ing elevations of rooms of many kinds, 
the designing of floor plans, and the 
design and arrangements of furniture 
and decorative accessories. Both floor 
plans and elevations are used. General 
and museum research is followed to 
build the students' equipment. 


Third Year. The Third Year begins 
the study of the historic styles, with 

their adaptations and original modern 
designs. This course is concerned with 
the completed room, covering every 
detail, architectural, decorative and 
furnishing. Each student is required to 
do careful personal research work. 


Fourth Year. The same method as that 
of the Third Year is followed in research, 
adaptation and invention. The remainder 
of Fourth Year is given to a series of 
problems, creating modern rooms, in 
which not only the architectural back- 
ground but also the furniture and decora- 
tive accessories are specifically designed. 
Lectures in and the study of materials, 
cabinet making, upholstery, curtains, 
floor coverings, painted surfaces and all 
the various trades covered in the pro- 
fession develop the practical.

HP he Work in this course is intended 
to develop in the student an appre- 
ciation of plastic form and the ability to 
express himself in the various mediums: 
clay, wood, pottery, marble and stone. 

Starting with the modelling of geo- 
metrical solids and their application to 
all natural forms, working from natural 
objects such as fruit and flowers, the 
student progresses to animals and the 
human form. From this experience he is 
encouraged to create portraits in relief 
and in the round, and to create sculptural 
compositions, designs for pottery and

Mural Painting 

HeadofDept.: CHAS. F. COMFORT, A.R.C.A., O.S.A. 

HpHERE has appeared during the past 
-*- decade marked evidence of a revival 
of the ancient collaboration of Painting, 
Sculpture and Architecture. The most 
pronounced indication of this new align- 
ment is the growing public interest in 
Mural Painting as applied to public, 
domestic and commercial building. 
Sensible of these developments, the 
Ontario College of Art has, in common 
with many European and American 

Colleges, organized a Department of 
Mural Painting. It will be the objective 
of this department to provide instruction 
for qualified students in the historic back- 
ground of the subject, the theory of 
traditional methods, and their practical 
application under modern conditions, 
such as Oils on Canvas, True Fresco, 
Technical Paints on various surfaces, 
plaster, glass, metals, etc. 



Head of Dept.: CAMERON PAULIN, B.F.A. 

'""PHIS department enables the student 
to design and execute in clay such 
objects as vases, bowls, jars, plates, tiles, 
animals and small figures. 

In the First Year the student applies 
his designs to clay and learns such pro- 
cesses as sgraffito, carving, embossing, 
underglaze and overglaze decoration, slip 
work and majolica. 

Courses in mould making, casting, 
throwing, hand-building and glazing are 

Lectures on glaze formulae and batch 
computations, clay and glaze raw in- 
gredients, Firing and History of Ceramics 
accompany the work of the advanced
